… xpanding. xciting.
Cheating I know (exercising creative license I like to think) but xylophones and x-rays don’t really feature in day to day life!

    Your’e kidding, xylophones don’t feature in your every day life?! Great pick, must be exciting and nerve-racking in about equal measure.

      Ooh, how exciting! My youngest grandchild has just started school, so my Daughter, Emma is suffering from Empty Nest Syndrome and has to keep busy all the time.

    I can not believe you are already on x – not an easy letter!

    Janet – we’re far enough along now that the nerves have left us and we’re just very excited now (although all this expanding is rather uncomfortable!)

    Joanna – xxxx always welcome – this little one will certainly be smothered in them

    Lynne – I love babies but there’s something very special about watching loved ones growing up and getting more curious and developing their own personality. I bet you have lots of smile making conversations with your granddaughter.

    Greg – tricky indeed, hence the creative license with spelling. Looking forward to your x further down the line – thinking of a word is one thing but illustrating it, quite something else. xtraordinary would be my suggestion for you :o)

    Shaheen – lots of happy faces here too :o)

#onefromthearchives in the days when I had time to experiment with preserve recipes and create edible gifts
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #chutneyaddict #allotmentgardening #foragersdelight #preservemaking So totally stoked to receive my #thisisbritainphotobook this morning.  My gut feeling was right - bedtime stories with our Lumie bed bug was the photo chosen by #rankin for inclusion.  Overjoyed to see my beautiful boys in print

#proudmumma #newblogpost 5 ways with . . . a ton of rhubarb.  Many thanks to @choclette8 for sharing two of her recipes so I could finally complete this post!

I say grew but I actually just forgot about them and they did this all by themselves!
